Pierre McGuire

NBC hockey analyst Pierre McGuire is a candidate to become the next general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“Yes, I can confirm there have been discussions with Pens management,” McGuire told Toronto’s TSN radio affiliate, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The hire would reunite McGuire with his former team. In 1990, he served as scout for the Penguins, then became an assistant under Scotty Bowman as Pittsburgh won Stanley Cup titles in 1991 and ’92.
